SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract The President’s Proclamation on Steel Safeguards mandated that the Departments of Commerce and Treasury institute an import licensing system to facilitate the monitoring of certain steel imports in 2002. Regulations were established that implemented the Steel Import Monitoring and Analysis (SIMA) System and expanded on the licensing system in 2006 for steel that was part of those safeguards. The import license information is necessary to assess import trends of steel products. In order to effectively monitor steel imports, Commerce must collect and PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 provide timely aggregated summaries about the imports. The Steel Import License is the tool used to collect the necessary information. The Census Bureau currently collects import data and disseminates aggregate information about steel imports. However, the time required to collect, process, and disseminate this information through Census can take up to 90 days after importation of the product, giving interested parties and the public far less time to respond to injurious sales. II. Method of Collection The license application can be submitted electronically via the Commerce Web site (http:// enforcement.trade.gov/steel/license/) or completed electronically and emailed or faxed to the Department. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0625–0245. Form Number(s): ITA–4141P. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,500. Estimated Time per Response: 10 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 92,878. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: 0. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
